Storm Imminent


My pastel, Storm Imminent, has been juried into the 2017 PSSW National Juried Exhibition. I am honored that our show judge, Jen Evenhus, selected my painting to be included.

This depiction of the Bunker Sands Wetlands received the Landscape Award. A sincere thank you to our generous donors - Chartpak and Holbein for the prize. I can never have enough pastels.

We were once again delighted that our juried exhibition was held at the beautiful Tower Gallery in the Convention and Visitors Bureau in Grapevine, TX for the month of October. Our PSSW Juried Exhibition showcases the best of pastel paintings from our members and nationally known artists.

Artist of the Month

It is an honor to have been selected for the Spotlight on the Artist of the Month in the April SWS Scene newsletter. This very active group of watercolorists continues to enrich my painting life. Read the full article -

Thanks SWS!


My artwork was on display for the inaugural opening of this new gallery space last year. Their focus is on expanding the interest in local art and promoting a lifestyle enhanced by gardening, nature and the environment.

I am delighted that NHG is working with me to offer ongoing watercolor and sketching classes. These are great fun as students get a chance to explore their creative side and I get the chance to share my enthusiasm for all things painting and gardening. The Facebook link on the top of the pages of my website has the most up to date information, but check here.


A boxed set of sympathy cards is now being offered by Gracefully Yours, which features images from four of my pastel paintings. I am delighted that my art was chosen for these exquisitely designed, high quality cards. Packed three each of four designs, every card has a full color interior along with comforting scripture. My art is created with great joy, so it is my hope that these cards will bring a bit of comfort to the recipients. You may order them from the Gracefully Yours website in the boxed cards section.

Haddad's Fine Arts, of Anaheim California has published posters of three of my pastel landscapes. The series was inspired by trips along the gulf coast and my fascination for the varied lush greenery along the waterways. They are 20 x 24 inch heavy weight poster. These are available from national suppliers of fine art posters.
